To the east of Granville Island is Yaletown. Once a warehouse district, the neighbourhood has been revitalized into one of the city's chicest neighbourhoods. Trendy restaurants, unique shopping, and beautiful brick lofts highlight Yaletown's downtown charm.

A flight to Vancouver brings you to Canada's largest Chinatown

Chinatown Vancouver

Chinese Canadians have had a presence in Vancouver since the late 1800s. The population makes up a sizable portion of Vancouver's diverse cultural make-up. Vancouver's Chinatown is therefore one of the oldest such cultural districts in Canada and celebrates the city's Chinese population. The area was declared a National Historic Site in 2011.

Located to the east of downtown Vancouver, Chinatown Vancouver is known predominantly for its one-of-a-kind traditional Chinese cuisine found in the array of restaurants, cafes, and bakeries. Explore traditional Chinese grocery stores with shelves stocked with authentic and unique Chinese products.

With the streets lined with traditional Chinese sculptures, there will be no mistaking Chinatown Vancouver for other neighbourhoods throughout the city. The eye-catching buildings throughout the area are preserved through heritage designation. Murals on the side of these buildings tell the stories of early Chinese pioneers in the area.

If you're left seeking a tranquil setting while on your visit to Vancouver's Chinatown, head to the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. This garden was the first of its kind built outside of China and is available to explore free of charge. The garden offers a peaceful escape in the heart of Chinatown and doubles as a museum with guided tours and exhibitions to explore.

Chinatown is one of the best places to visit after your Vancouver flight, as it allows you to participate in a unique cultural experience you won't want to miss. The area is well-serviced by several Vancouver Transit bus routes as well as the Expo Line of the light rail transit system.
